Want to Lift Your Mood? This Is What Every Nutritionist Is Recommending
What is a probiotic?
A probiotic is a substance that contains live bacteria. Yoghurt is a probiotic but you can also take it in pill form. From aiding digestive problems to increasing the level of serotonin in the body, they are kind of miracle workers. For example, in one of the most recent studies this year, a team of researchers from the University of Virginia School of Medicine discovered that upon feeding depressed mice a probiotic called Lactobacillus, a bacteria found in live-cultures yogurt, they managed to reverse the symptoms.
How does it work?
But, we hear you cry, how can a small pill or yoghurt containing millions of bacteria really help your mood? It works like this: probiotics affect the gut in a positive way by "decreasing stress signaling in the body and possibly even increasing the transformation of the amino acid tryptophan to serotonin in the brain."
For further proof on how probiotics can help, I spoke to Madgwick about how she's worked with her clients who have anxiety and depression. After taking probiotics for a few months, many of those with depression and anxiety reported feeling better.
"When people are depressed, they are less likely to want to interact socially and find themselves struggling with low energy levels, however, after taking probiotics, they noticed increased energy levels which means they've been able to get out more."
She also mentioned that one client in particular was suffering from bouts of depression a couple of times every month but more recently she's only experienced one period in six months.
Which one should I take?
This is where it gets a bit tricky. According to Madgwick you need to find out which strain of bacteria you need to best fit your body, which can only really be discovered by speaking to a nutritionist about your symptoms and then working out which one is right for you.
Essentially, if you want to do it the best way possible, a nutritionist is your way forward. However, if you want to go the health food shop route then there are a few rules to note:
1. Check how the supplement is stored: you want it to be refrigerated as live bacteria will die otherwise.
2. Check the number of organisms: see how many it says on the bottle—ideally it's the more the merrier.
3. Check the strains: Now, here's where it's the most tricky. Ideally, this is what you'd speak to a nutritionist about.
